Huntington Senior Center hosted an annual health fair for its members to learn about community resources and programming.
Family First was invited to participate this year and offer information on family caregiving, companion services, and answer any questions about home care. The event offered health screenings, lunch, beneficial information, and an opportunity for the aging community to come together and learn about tools to assist with healthy aging. Thank you, Huntington Senior Center, for putting together a beautiful event! A special thanks to Holli and Keri for ensuring that the day went smoothly for all participants!
